Pizzetti's Requiem Mass was composed in 1922 and is a work firmly steeped in the Gregorian tradition with Pizzetti weaving an intriguing twentieth-century web over the familiar tunes. The Requiem Mass reaches the heights of Ildebrando Pizzetti's choral music, a work of supreme beauty with displays of utter confidence in the genre.
Vaughan Williams' Mass in G minor was composed in 1921 and is perhaps notable as the first mass written in a distinctly English manner since the sixteenth century. Dedicated to Gustav Holst it is written for unaccompanied double choir and four soloists.
This is an opportunity to hear two beautiful and stirring choral works written in the early part of the same decade.
